Homes for sale…are there any left?

The trend continues! Whatcom County is now down to 979 current homes on the market. That’s 16.8% less inventory than the same quarter last year. The number of pending homes is up 27.7% and sold homes are up 23% compared to the same time last year. The shortage of inventory across the county should begin and already is driving higher prices.

Lynden continues to chart amazing numbers. Our inventory is now down to only 71 homes on the market. We haven’t seen this low of inventory in several years. Comparing the same month at the same time last year the available inventory is down 45.8%, pending homes is up 325%, and the number of sold homes is up 100%! It’s a great time to sell!
